Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park

We visited the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park just outside of Port Arthur. We were fortunate to see a mother Devil and her four pups.

The architecture was stunning in Melbourne. There were new moderistic buildings next to 1880's buildings. One of the most interesting was the ACMI (Australian Center fr the Moving Image) building.

Melbourne was truely a international city with many races and creeds--not sure which race or creed this guy was, but he was very colorful. After I snapped his picture he turned and gave me a nasty look--as though he did not want the attention.

Sherry and her new boyfriend in Melbourne's Starbucks--this is the first Starbucks we have visited since we were back home in the states last June--poor Sherry.

We found Melbourne really enjoyable and very interesting. Besides all of the contemporary stores, the mix of old brick buildings next to modern sky-scrapers, multi-cultural people and food, an amazing aquarium, the ACMI--the Australian Center for the Moving Image (awesome), there was a STARBUCKS! We spent four nights in Melbourne--and that was not enough! We went for 'walkabouts' everyday and collapsed in bed at night. We had beautiful weather and found the Melbournians very friendly and helpful. Our last night in Melbourne we were picked up by Geoff MacDonald and taken to a pizza dinner with his wife Kathy and kids Callum and Beth. We had met the MacDonalds in Resolution Bay at Tanna Island, Vanuatu--and they told us to 'ring them up' when we came to Melbourne. They are wonderful people and we had a great night with them. We learned that Geoff's grandfather was sent to Australia as a convict from the Isle of Sky, Scotland. Tired, but very happy, we drove our lonely rental car to the Melbourne airport and took the one-hour flight (thank God) to Hobart, Tasmania.
